Andrea Allen, recent move to Gualala has totally fulfilled her passion for being part of a fantastic art community and continuing her painting while looking out of her studio window at the magnificent ocean. Allen is incredibly inspired to incorporate all these new visual and sensory experiences into her work, while continuing to utilize all the traditional Chinese techniques, balanced with a subtle contemporary flair. Ancient symbolism and philosophy continue to influence Allen’s work, enhancing the feeling of vital energy and serenity. The overall effect is for the viewer to be effortlessly invited into each painting, experiencing a peaceful balance and harmony in a timeless continuum.
